Daily Cute: Rescued Baby Squirrel Nursed Back to Health

This little baby was found alone on a busy road. He was probably orphaned by his parents and could have died had he not been discovered. His caretakers were determined to restore him to full health, and now he is thriving at a local sanctuary.

Check back daily for more adorable animal videos.

Awwww... such a little cutie!
My cousin found a baby squirrel in his back yard 2 and 1/2 years ago. No mama anywhere. He bottle fed it and nursed it back to health. He is so tame my cousin brings him to family functions and he loves the attention.
